The latest piece of Superman: Legacy Barside Buzz rumors Skyler Gisondo for Jimmy Olsen plus has some Jor’El information. As always, this is just a rumor for now and it comes from the r/DCEULeaks subreddit. The thread is a series of claims the mods have received which they have tried to validate.
The link has some validated rumors on Sandman Season 2. However the Superman: Legacy rumors are only partially verified for now. Let’s just get to what was claimed.
We will start with Jor’El.
“Jor-El. He’s drawn as being tall, and I mean REALLY tall. Like, above 7 feet at least. His costume is sort of a mix between armor and fabric, with the armor bits being like a baby blue and the fabric being a crystal-y white. He has a blue House of El crest on his chest which glows, kind of like an LED. And here’s the fun part. Take this with a grain of salt, as a ton of concept art uses random actors’ faces on characters, but the specific art I’ve seen features Kurt Russell’s face on Jor-El. Which would be great casting IMHO.”
As said here, using an actors face for concept art is not uncommon. Sometimes a director will say they are looking for an actor like… Well, perhaps in this case Gunn said Kurt Russell? That doesn’t mean Russell is playing Jor’El.
We know Jimmy is in the movie and the role is up for grabs. However. according to this rumor they think someone may already be firm favorite.
“Jimmy Olsen. Basically the same as I’ve said before, but now interestingly with Skyler Gisondo’s face added into the art. Like I said, we use actors’ likenesses for a ton of concept work, but I’m inclined to believe the Skyler is actually Jimmy here due to everything we’ve heard.”
Looking at the image above, I can totally see Gisondo as Olsen. However, we wait to see.
Here is what the mods said about how they view this information.
“After independently corroborating details with this user, the modteam feels more confident in this source’s quality. However, due to the limited scope of their claims so far, none have been officially confirmed yet.”

One I would take with a pinch of salt is any talk of Brainiac, as other insiders have said he’s not the villain of Superman: Legacy. Yet, here is another rumor from the same source below.
“I’ve seen concept art for what appears to be a Brainiac Drone. Now, this doesn’t outright confirm that Brainiac is in the movie, but he at least has some sort of presence. The drone’s appearance is nothing of note, just a generic gray robot with green highlights. The reason I’m lead to believe it’s a Brainiac Drone is because it features Brainiac’s signature headpiece thing on its forehead. So yeah, interesting stuff.”
I guess we will see if this checks out?
